GUILFORD, Conn., April 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Northstar Biosciences emerged from stealth mode today – announcing the official launch of the company, as well as its steadfast commitment to delivering skincare solutions that are 100% natural and plant-derived. In conjunction with today's company launch, Northstar Biosciences unveiled the first two members of its skincare product family - clear and natural Cleansing Cream and clear and natural Acne Cream. Formulated with Lauric Acid, an all-natural antimicrobial, the clear and natural formulations eliminated over 99.98% of acne causing bacteria in testing.
Why now? You would be hard-pressed to find anyone that would disagree that acne is a skin problem from which few teenagers can hide. Historically regarded as a "teenager's curse" recent industry research reveals a significant number of adults are getting acne. A recent Wall Street Journal article stated 40 million to 50 million people including 15% of women and 7% of men over 50 are affected by acne, so it's not surprising that acne treatments have exploded into a multi-billion dollar industry. Unfortunately most current topical treatments are based on harsh synthetic chemicals like Benzoyl Peroxide that often result in dry and flaky skin conditions.
Northstar Biosciences believes that Mother Nature had the answer all along. By harnessing the power within coconut oil, the clear and natural product family provides one of the most powerful all natural antimicrobial agents found in nature - Lauric Acid. When applied to the skin, Northstar's patent pending formula goes to work, killing over 99.98% of the bacteria that causes acne, Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes), in just 10 minutes or less. Northstar Biosciences has combined antimicrobial agents, together with other all-natural, plant-derived ingredients to deliver a soothing cream that minimizes the inflammation due to acne flare-ups.
Why not stick with what you know? Unlike products formulated around harsh chemical treatments - Benzoyl Peroxide and Salicylic Acid - peeling, itching, irritation, reddened skin, dryness and other long-term skin damage will not occur with clear and natural products. In fact, the effectiveness and safety of Lauric Acid has been researched and proven for over 25 years in numerous scientific studies and is deemed GRAS (generally recognized as safe) by the FDA.
clear and natural beta tester, Lindsey McQuesten, an 18 year old college student from Massachusetts said, "I used the acne cream by itself for six weeks and thought it worked really well against my existing acne. However, once I started the twice daily cleansing cream routine combined with direct acne cream applications, I noticed a huge reduction in the frequency and the severity of my acne breakouts." She continued, "This is better than any product I have ever tried – and believe me, I've tried them all."
McQuesten's mother, Deb Toland, remarked, "When Lindsey came home from college, I immediately noticed how good her skin looked. I was thrilled for her. The skin inflammation was virtually gone and her chin area, where she usually experienced her worst blemishes, was completely clear."
"Most people that suffer with acne find it a source of embarrassment and frustration," said Mike Vitagliano, Chief Operating Officer (COO), Northstar Biosciences. "The frustration stems from the fact that currently available acne treatments are ineffective, have very nasty side effects, and are oftentimes simply unaffordable." He continued, "We are very excited that our patent-pending process has yielded such a highly effective and affordable solution that will enable everyone to experience the benefits of an all natural, plant-derived acne treatment."
